Description Christopher Stone 2007-01-19 17:52:16 EST
I have a package that requires php-mysql, according to the Fedora Extras
packaging guidelines, a sub package should require its main package.  I just
assumed php-mysql should require php, yet it only requires php-common.  Does
this make sense?  When you you use php-mysql without using php and only
php-common?  Should it not require php as well?  Please clarify.
Comment 1 Christopher Stone 2007-01-19 18:13:15 EST
Okay, I guess I understand what you are doing here.  php-common is actually php,
and the php package is the web interface to php.  Kind of confusing from a
packaging perspective but makes sense from a user perspective.  So, if my
package requires php-mysql, I should also add php to pull in the mod_php package
and web interface aspects of php also, correct?
